Your smile is one of your best assets, so, of course, you would like to keep it sparkling. But even if you brush, use white strips, and visit your dentist twice a year, it may not be enough. With a variety of tooth whitening methods available, whitening your teeth has never been more accessible.
In-office teeth whitening at Smart Dental
This is a tooth whitening procedure that is performed in the dental chair. It is the fastest and most effective way to whiten teeth and usually takes around one and a half to two hours to complete. In-practice whitening is the best option for those wanting ‘instant’ results. The dentist will first apply a protective gel to the lips and gums, followed by the application of the whitening gel to the teeth. The gel (which contains Hydrogen Peroxide) is then activated by a special LED light, and the resulting photochemical reaction gently penetrates the tooth to lift deep stains and discolorations
Is teeth whitening safe?
Yes. Clinical studies have shown that whitening your teeth with carbamide or hydrogen peroxide under the supervision of a dental professional is safe for teeth and gums. We do recommend to consult a dentist before using any at-home teeth whitening kit.
How long does in-office whitening last?
This will depend on many factors, including the lifestyle and habits that resulted in the stained teeth in the first place. This said it should be several years before the stains reappear to the level they were before treatment.
